Who owns the Cavern Club
Who owns the Cavern Club

AIR DATE: December 1, 2011

Well the question isn't exactly who owns the Cavern Club. That's the original club in Liverpool where the Beatles performed before they were really famous. The Hard Rock Hotel owns the rights to the name in the United States and has created a Cavern Club in its Las Vegas hotel. So how can the name be owned in some places by one company and other companies in other places? A federal lawsuit is set to decide who really owns the name "Cavern Club."
